      Thanks Wendy.

      I may have misunderstood but I could have sworn she
      said the dose of aspirin she was giving was so low I
      couldn't use a pill.  That my meds would have to be
      compounded, so that is why I am ended up with a liquid
      oil and aspirin mix.  I just got the meds delivered
      but will wait for my husband to get home in an hour
      to administer in case she does have a bad reaction.

      Was that the first heart med she was given or did you
      have this one from the beginning because it worked
      for her so well?

      Hi Barbi,

      I am new to the group but am quickly becoming an old hand with medications for
      the heart.

      My cat Tino was recently diagnosed with congestive heart failure and is on all
      kinds of medications.

      Plavix seemed to have a terrible taste and he would foam at the mouth if it
      didn't go straight down.

      The Dr then put him on one baby aspirin every 3 days. (In addition he takes
      enanapril and lasix 2 times daily)

      I found that I got quite a bit of help with these meds with a company called
      "Greenies" They make a product called "pill pockets".

      They may or may not work but would definitely be worth a try.
      Tino actually begs for them even though meds are hidden inside.
      Chicken is his favorite. I also found the aspirin I used is low dose adult.
      That means that while its the dame dosage as baby aspirin, it is not flavored
      and has a protective coating so no bad taste.

      Hopefully this helps. Definitely worth a try!
      Good luck!

      Wendy "Tino" and "Josy"
